Anyone have a few bob to spare? A couple of grand would do the trick.

Sonny Molloy’s, an award-winning Irish whiskey bar in the heart of Galway, has just released the world’s most expensive whiskey platter.

Aptly named ‘The Prestige Platter’, the new addition to the menu costs €2,750. Might have to put that one on the credit card…

Claiming the title of “the most expensive Irish whiskey platter ever created in the world”, it consists of a measure of the Midleton Pearl Very Rare 30th Anniversary, Midleton 1973 30-Year-Old, Midleton 20th Anniversary and the Midleton 25-Year-Old Pure Pot Still.

All served in bespoke crystal tumblers.
